're quite right that the nation was very divided at this time. according to political parties and according to different geographic sections that had different security problems and different economic challenges and so there really was a problem of how to unite the country around a patriotic project and that's part of what makes it so interesting to study the war and to study patriotism in the war and the creation of the unified patriotism is one of the sort of central accomplishments of the war. by the end of the war you have a level of unity that you don't have at the beginning of the war. so over the course of the war you have militia from different states who aren't committed to fighting and all of that will be transformed by the battle of new orleans which is a huge success, not really in strategic terms because it actually occurs after the signing of the peace treaty, but it's a cultural, it's a signal success because it's a moment when everyone performs the way they're supposed to and the challenges of unity and the challenges of commitment this had been there in the preceding severa

, it is counting on guesswork. i think the notion that we as a community or we as a nation must use racial profiling to make ourself secure or sacrifice civil liberties is not only false, it reeks of hypocrisy. if we were truly worried about national security in the sense of compromising civil liberties, it would make sense that we would also ask or those who are engaging in profiling would also ask for the prohibition of firearms. we lose over 100,000 americans to gun violence since 9/11. that is more than we have lost in terrorism and the wars in afghanistan and iraq combined. yet there is not this equal call for gun laws. i'm not offering there should be, but i'm offering the compromise of civil rights for national security does not work. what is equally troubling with the idea of using race, national origin, or religion in a national security context, that suggests the most powerful nation in the world, a nation that is equipped with law enforcement and national security experts that are second to none must rely on bias and guesswork to make ourselves secure versus human intelligence,

based on race, ethnicity, religion, or national origin is disturbing, i think it's important also to note that it is poor law enforcement. law enforcement is a finite resource. using law enforcement resources profiling as opposed to relying on our facts based on behavior suggesting a crime is a waste of that law enforcement resource. it leaves us less safe and more at risk when we don't target based on conduct and behavior suggestive of a crime but based on other considerations informed by prejudice. my comments today will focus on religious profiling of american muslims. up to 6 million americans know what it's like to be looked upon with suspicion in the post-9/11 america. perhaps even before. although muslim americans work hard and play by the rules and a small number don't. many even live the american dream and send their kids to college and earn a living just like everyone else. yet, many know all too well what it means to be pulled off of an airplane, pulled out of line, denied service, called names, or even physically attacked. like other americans, muslim-americans want la

, as a 21st century museum, the national museum of african-american history and culture must be and will be a place of collaboration. we must be a truly national museum that reaches beyond washington to engage new audiences and to collaborate with the myriad of museums and educational institutions both nationally and internationally. ultimately, the national museum of african-american history and culture should be a place of meaning, of memory, of reflection, of laughter, of hope. it should be a beacon that reminds us of what we were, what challenges we still face, and a point us toward what we can become. the vision of the smithsonian's national museum of african-american history and culture is to inspire learning and understanding, promote healing, foster dialogue and reconciliation in an a environment that tells the american story through the lens of african-americans. in 2005, lonnie bunch was hired as the founding director of the museum. the museum will present the african-american story as part of the fabric of american life, a life of freedom, of bondage, of hope and r

background. given that background, how are different candidates framing their ideas of national security and what is the lens that they look through? i think it's a fair reading of governor romney's position to say he's looking at the concept of americans in the world as american exceptionalism. let me tell you what i mean by that by some of the governor's speeches. you can tell foreign policy isn't a predominant issue because the last speech romney gave on national security was during the south carolina -- early in the primary season. october 7th, 2011. what does romney say there? we're exceptional because we are a nation founded on precious idea that was birthed in the american revolution and propounded by our greatest statesmen in the fundamental documents. we are a people who threw off the yoke of tyranny. later in the speech he goes on to say god did not create this country to be a nation of followers. america is not destined to be one of several equally balanced global powers. america must lead in the world or someone else will. so this idea of american exceptionalism that
